states and israel have. president obama will travel there, and it was important to make sure that as the first overseas trip he's making in his second term that he go there and reach out to the future of the israeli people. talk with, with university students and young people. see the historic connection to the lands that the israeli people have. make sure that he focuses on the future. seeing the innovation and the success that israel has had in their economy. in short, this is an incredible opportunity to reaffirm our relationship with the israeli people. and also to make sure we can have our president sit down with the prime minister for some important discussions about how to move the peace process forward. and get the two parties back to the discussion table. >> how important is iran when it comes to this visit? obviously president obama has a very ambitious domestic agenda. he wants to see immigration reform, perhaps some gun control measures moving forward. perhaps a big debt deal. all of those things would seem to go to the back burner if there was some sort of engage

understand, we must remember, but behind personal feelings, there are interests. >> the state of the economy and social affairs was a big issue in the recent israeli elections. barack obama is likely to find a new israeli government less concerned about peace talks but very preoccupied about the unstable state of the wider region. what mr. obama will hear from his israeli counterparts is israel is very jittery. they are preparing for a fallout as syria disintegrates and hezbollah rearms. >> we are getting ready to shoot back and to be much more aggressive or much more decisive in this war in order to make this war and as quick as possible. mereve years ago as a presidential candidate, barack obama net and family rebuilding their home after a rocket attack from gaza. whatever impact he made then has long worn off. >> he says he is like any other color vision but acknowledges he has been a very good friend to israel. and a difficult trip. you are watching "bbc world news america." still to come, pope francis celebrates his first public mass as leader of the catholic church, showing signs of ch
and budgetary issues here in the united states. the ironic part of this is a president obama came to office in 2008 talking about impeachment, but i think the legacy is quickly becoming one of disengagement from this region, stepping back. as i mentioned, i was just on a trip that took me not only to the gulf, but farther afield. the striking thing was that for all the differences that our allies have on syria or political islam or iran? the one talking point -- or iran, the one talking point i heard from all done is that they're looking for clear articulations of u.s. policy. they're looking for a stronger role, a more active role for the united states. we often feel in the united states that we are not wanted. maybe that is true to an extent in some quarters. we feel sometimes -- i think tennis alluded to this when he was talking about the way the it administration began -- that because of mistakes or missteps in places like iraq, that people would like to see us go. in fact, the opinion is quite the opposite, because of errors, they view us as having more responsibility for securing the
to the establishment of a palestinian state. it is no secret that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and president barack obama have not always seen eye-to-eye on the best road to peace and that's just the beginning for president obama on this historic trip. he has to deal with nuclear threats from iran and provide a road map for how far the united states will go in defense of israel. we will get insights to all of these challenges for president obama with the former ambassador to israel, martin indyk who joins us from washington where he is the vice president and director for foreign policy at the brookings institution. ambassador indyk, good to have you back on the program, sir. >> thanks, tavis, good to be with you. tavis: i guess the start is whether or not i have overstated the case. there are some who believe as i intimated a moment ago that the president's very presence in israel that's to say, our president, barack obama, signals to some there might be renewed vigor, renewed possibility for peace between the israel
the decades to what the republicans want in the state battle we had in 2011, the budget control act was obama needs the debt ceiling to be increased because we spent so much money and republican said okay, we will raise the debt ceiling so the country doesn't default but only if you agree to a dollar for dollar reduction in spending over the next decade. that $2.5 trillion in spending restraints, not real cuts, spending, less than obama had hoped but in washington that is called a cut. if you want 10 of something and you only got eight of something, you walked away with eight but so that was the $2.5 trillion spending reduction over the next decade. it hasn't happened yet. we have several problems. the trillion dollars that obama obama -- obamacare tax increases in this decade have begun to hit now. oddly enough the democrats in the house and senate decided to put the tax increases, both of them after the 2012 election so everybody voted and now the tax increase has hit. this is not helpful for the economy and they think it's going to be unpleasant. >> host: up next from watertown south dakot

states, president obama would be less active in israeli issues, that he may leave that to others, especially the europeans. which could mean not objecting to what the europeans are doing. measures have lately been taken -- anyopean countries thoughts on that? i doubt that. i have said before, he chose to take this trip. the trip itself sends a signal that he retains an interest in this. number two, i will never be in the u.s. interest to see bad ideas adopted. we will have to pick up the pieces anyway. is washingthink he his hands of it -- if he was, he would not be taking a trip there. number two, the secretary of state made it clear that this is an issue of great interest to him. part of this trip is designed to not only send the president interest in it, but to create wind he hanged the that -- wind behind the bat. if you adopt ideas that, in the end will be distraught and, to try get something done, the united states will have a posture on that and will not remain indifferent. i want to say something, to echo what dennis said. is important, we use this term honest broker. it

maimed or crippled by bush's war. in 2002 before the war began, a young state senator named barack obama came out to oppose the invasion of iraq. at a time when few politicians on the left were showing that kind of courage. when he was running for president a few years later, he promised to end the iraq war, and in 2011, he did. >> as president, i want us to fight on the right battlefield. and what that means is getting out of iraq. >> the long war in iraq will come to an end by the end of this year. across america, our servicemen and women will be reunited with their families. today, i can say that our troops in iraq will definitely be home for the holidays. >> our troops are home. the iraq war is over. but today too many republicans haven't learned the lessons of this tragedy. dick cheney himself says he has no regrets. >> it is a wartime situation. it was more important to be successful than it was to be loved. if i had to do it over again, i would do it in a minute. >> and here's what a new republican congressman, a veteran considered a rising star in the party, said just last week.

attacks with more than 50 people. it almost is that there is no unified state in the country anymore. three straight states that are not at peace with each other. >> you are in israel, another nation where the u.s. influence diminished. this is a historic visit for president obama to go over there. prime minister netanyahu, his party did not farewell in the last elections. both men seem to be tied up with a lot of doe mostic affairs. what is the sense with president obama coming over there and he ran the central issue for common israelis these days. >> well, the bond between the united states and israel is still very strong even if the personal chemistry between netanyahu and president obama is not strong and it has been widely reported they don't have a very good working relationship. one of the main reasons for coming not just to israel, but jordan and the west bank right now. that was for the united states to shore up friends. the united states still as a friend of israel. if you look back at the larger regional issues, the chaos around us. the united states is worried about its f

with is barack obama doesn't want to be the first president to let the two-state solution slip away. i'm not sure that the two-state solution makes sense other than in washington policy discussions about the peace process. if you just look at what has been happening in israel, in jerusalem with regard to settlement construction in jerusalem around jerusalem in the west bank the structure of this conflict in which the israelis can't possibly give the palestinians what they require minutenally for peace and vice versa i'm not sure where we see any optimism for coming to an -- >> rose: but people are scared to death of a one-state solution. >> indeed, a lot of people are scared -- >> rose: it's part of the israeli psyche and more. >> it has, indeed. but at the same time the israelis have been prepared to make those moves -- >> rose: the israelis or the prime minist? >> well, i think both. if you look at the way in which israelis have detached themselves from this issue, have abdicated the issue to seters and religiouss meian i can groups in the west bank, i'm not convinced that this is a priority fo
anger at the united states. >> the americans did not do anything when they came to iraq. they granted freedom to iraq? what freedom are they talking about? >> warner: in washington, president obama issued a statement marking the anniversary saying he joined in paying tribute to all who served and sacrificed in one of our nation's longest wars. earlier i spoke to jane arraf a reporter earlier, i spoke to jane arraf, a reporter for al-jazeera english and the christian science monitor, about today's violence in baghdad and life in post-war iraq. welcome jane. what is known about who or what's behind today's car bombings and suicide attacks? >> well, the finger, judy, is always pointed at al qaeda and al qaeda-linked groups. because they view the attacks to have the fingerprints of that organization. it was extremely coordinated attack as you saw, more than 20 bombs, many car bombs and then for good measure they threw in some suicide bombers as well as sticky bombs on the bottoms of buses. most shi'a target and security targets. that sits in to what al qaeda is doing, try to destabilize t
or not the president of the united states met with any of the benghazi survivors and he said, i don't know, which was weird. >> do you know if president obama had a chance to meet with or speak with the survivors of benghazi? >> we don't talk about specifics in terms of the president's visits to walter reed or elsewhere. i don't have an answer to that question. >> we've been hearing a lot from senator lindsay graham of south carolina making his statements, how does it make sense that we find out every single detail about the raid on bin laden's compound that makes president obama look good but not when something goes bad. >>brian: nearly 40 million people facing three major snowstorms around this country. maria molina is outsidetracking the storms with her government-issued outer wear. >> i wish it was. good morning. good to see you. good morning everyone. it's a little breezy here in new york city. definitely on the chilly side as well. we had a storm system that produced a lot of snow across places in the northeast and actually severe weather. we had a confirmed tornado in humphreys county in t

.c. we're just down the street from the united states capitol building, where president obama and the prime minister of ireland will be coming up to the hill for the big st. patrick's day lunch on and the celebration this evening, after which president obama will be heading off to the middle his first trip to israel as president of the united states. we'll visit with israel palestine, and also jordan. the pope celebrated his installation mass today. vice president joe biden was there, along with nancy pelosi representing all of us here in the united states for the pope's celebration, first official mass of his papacy. and closer on the home front, senator bob menendez got some good news, those women who were allegedly paid to have sex with bob menendez were actually paid to make the video making such a claim. all of that and a whole lot more% coming up next on current tv. ♪ young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that
similar laws on the books and a number of other states are also considering comparable measures. the obama administration supports the challenge to the arizona law. and today's arguments on the heels of another case that could roll back a key portion of the voting rights act of 1965. for more on today's arguments, we turn as always to marcia coyle of the "national law journal." she was in the courtroom this morning, and is back with us tonight. so the outcome, marcia, of this could actually tip the federal-state balance on who gets to govern how we vote. >> that's true, gwen. the question before the justices is where do you draw the line between who has the authority to regulate elections. the election clause of the constitution actually gives authority to both. but where is the line when one crosses or goes too far than the other does? so that's the issue before the court. it wasn't clear today that it's going to be an easy line to find. >> ifill: the reason why this arizona law exists is because arizona officials say there's a problem involving illegal or undocumented immigrants register
. we are at the forefront of the obama administration's push to establish a broadband foundation needed to support the innovation economy in the united states. we are looking to produce better and new jobs and position to ensure that america remains at the forefront of the economy in the 21st century. we are working to ensure that all americans have the resources and the skills necessary to fully share in all of the possibilities, civic, social, and economic. all of these made possible by the internet. that is one of the reasons we are here today. he discovered for the administration is the broadband technology opportunities program or btop. this program was established in 2009 by the american reinvestment and recovery act and is administered by ntia. we have nearly $4 billion invested in roughly 230 projects across the country, all aimed at expanding broadband access and adoption in the country. and i want to tell you a little bit about the programs and then tell you about why we care so much about this issue. so, we have the btop for infrastructure projects. these are building broadba
weight -- by its own weight. but then i was thinking about it the en game for obama is a single pair system, how much easier to switch all 50 states to a single pair system if you start with 28 that are on the same system, so, and all of those that not to do it for the state, but to do it themselves, or have the federal government come in they will be on the same system. neil: but don't you see that is part of at all of a sudden, great logic. but it would be same as giving federal government more control over medicaid because governors might figure it is like free candy. the president is taking this load off. >> you make my argument, i am saying no biel do your own, we have -- we'll do our own, we have one of the lowest in the nation, idaho does we're second from t bottom in terms of health care cost. >> you are healthy, climbing mountains and that stuff. >> the other part is those 26 will be thrown in the same system. neil: best to avoid that. >> best to avoid the system, i think we should have had 50 different plans, so that we could truly be laboratories of health care for the fut
of iran, given developments today. >> reporter: absolutely. syria, iran, i think that president obama when he speaks to prime minister netanyahu will go there with the intent of making it very clear that the united states is committed to preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon, to making sure that the violence in syria is contained. that will be one of his key messages i am told. of course, they will address the issue of the israeli/palestinian stalled peace process right now. the president, of course, wanted to have progress on that during his first term. he didn't, so we expect that to be a big topic of conversation as well. i can tell you that what is interesting, prime minister netanyahu has used a slightly more conciliatory tone in terms of talking about palestinians in recent days. talking about the fact that he is potentially open to compromise, so the white house is heartened by that, but they're also tamping down expectations. they don't expect any large movement. but certainly all of those topics, martin, will be on the table when president obama sits down with prime minist
. here's what president obama has said. here's why this news, not just from a humanitarian perspective but whether or not the united states military will get involved, this is why chemical weapons is so important. here's the president. >> we have been very clear to the assad regime, but also, to other players on the ground that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical movement around or utilized. that would change my calculus. that was change my equation. >> general, does he make a mistake when he set so clearly what red lines are? people want them. if someone crosses it, you are forced to act. >> i don't think it's a mistake. i think it was a clear warning, both to assad and to his russian supporters that they can't do this. now, if the russians have an influence with assad, they better rein him back in. we talked about diplomacy and linkage with the russians. i didn't talk about the military option but there's a range of military options that could be used. >> all right. that brings me to the other top story tonight. that's al qaeda rising. why this is so compli

the last few months speculation since the united states and president obama will be less active in palestinian/israeli issues, peacemaking, that he may leave that to others, especially the europeans, which could mean not objecting to what europeans are doing or are encouraging be it in the u.n. or places like -- [inaudible] european countries are labeling products from the west bank as not coming from israel, things like that. any thoughts on that? >> and, dennis, do you want to -- >> i doubt that. first, as i said before, he chose to take this trip, and the trip itself sends a signal that he retains an interest in this, number one. number two, it's never going to be in the u.s.' interest to see bad ideas adopted. we're going to end up having to puck up the pieces anyway. -- pick up the pieces anyway. is so those who think he's washing his hands of it, if he was, he wouldn't be taking the trip there, number one. number two, his secretary of state has made it very clear this is an issue of great interest to him, and i think part of this trip is designed to not only send the presi
